Purpose-built Victorian public house of 1878 which for many years was a busy local for the nearby railway works (now closed) and retains its old compartmented layout with corridor hatch. Tetley's gave it their 'Heritage' badging in 1985, then a careful restoration that same year (by their architect George Williamson), and it was statutorily listed in 1994 following CAMRA’s York pilot study for English Heritage. An extensive revamp in 2014 (by new operators Ossett Brewery and owners Punch) has neatly incorporated an extra back room from a former kitchen. It has also introduced new-look décor throughout – including in the front public bar, losing some of the basic ‘working’ character that historically differentiated this room.
